The book is divided into different situations in which you can "use" Latin. The English translations of the Latin are quite amusing and a good chuckle. The indexing is user-friendly. So far I have found few to none of the typographical errors found in electronically converted books.

If you like Extreme Latin, you have to read this book 'and vice versa'!!!

Latin for All Occasions is a humorous modern Latin phrasebook, featuring such sections as 'Bald-Faced Lies Are Less Bald-Faced in Latin' and 'In the Vatican' ('Where can I get a hat like that?'). For all the things you always wanted to say in Latin but never knew how, this is the book.

Great! I knew as soon as I saw the advertisement for this on a postcard at a college bookstore that I would like it, and I did. Not only is it very humorous (how does Beard get so many utterly perfect cliche's from so many fields?) but also helped me in my Latin studies because it bridges the gap between the ancient language and modern technology like computers, television, The Beatles, and candy bars--words for which didn't exist in ancient Rome, but were carefully and logically synthesized for this book. Ergo, I'd say the book has benefit far beyond humor: it brings Latin up-to-date and turns it into a useful modern language. Infelix: I found 1-2 errors, and I wish Beard had given a derivation of his terms.
